's greta. see you tomorrow night. >>> tonight, president obama might want to call his act ing irs director because even he says he doesn't want obama care. >> this is not a hearing. this is a battle. >> no matter what our colleagues try to say to whisk this issue away, the government was intimidating people and targeting them based upon their political views. that's not phony. that's real. >> for two months we've heard nonstop complaints against them being corrupt and incompetent. despite that, the only politically motivated act was the republicans request that the i.g. focus only on the treatment of conservative groups. >> i think for a federal employee, i think more likely -- and i can speak for myself -- i'd prefer to stay with the current policy i'm pleased with rather than go through a change if i don't need to go through that change. >> did i not read the blog post properly that the employer mandate was delayed? >> there's what we're calling the transition relief period. in that case -- >> which means it's delayed for a year? >> yes. >> you assured us that the irs, despite the signif
the mainstream media seems to report on crimes where the minority are victims. and president obama and eric holder seems to weigh in only when it fits their race narrative. i. e., if i had a son, you know the rest. two murders, likely motivated by race -- >> i think it is safe to say that there is very little white on black violence. it is usually black on black violence, so when you say it happens, it doesn't happen all that often. >> but the black on white happens at a far greater rate than white on black? >> yes, but it is still a small percentage on murders that are done. usually it is between minorities. >> can i ask you, is it a very high percentage of white on black crime? we heard president obama weigh in on a couple of white on black crimes. >> i understand that -- first of all, i don't think that anybody ought to weigh in on the crimes to begin with, but if you're going to weigh in on them it seems to me you ought to balance the scales. like al sharpton, jesse jackson did do it, is to weigh on one, which is the opposite. clear the slate, everybody shut up. >> that is the problem,
are having. this predates president obama's november 2008 election. does that signal to you that at least it doesn't go as high as the white house? he was not even president then. >> it may, but what we do know is there is communication going on and that's not appropriate. we know it's communication about a question that it should be dealt with in the internal revenue service. that's what most concerns us. if it is referencing before then, remember lois learner worked at the commission before she went to the irs. maybe she is going clear back and concerned about this. the point is there is coordination between the two. what appears to be coordination between two agencies. >> in terms of the response you want, you want the response back by august 21st? last week i had a chance to question the acting commissioner and i said why don't we have all of lois learner's e-mails today? the lady at the center of the storm, the first thing you have done as commissioner is send us all her e-mails. who has she been talking to and what is she saying. if you truly want tosa the president said get to the
or obama administration has been fired or lost a paycheck. today the few who were singled out for very mild disciplinary action were invited back into the fold. chief washington correspondent james rosen has tonight's top story. >> reporter: in the nearly 12 months since a premeditated attack at two u.s. installations in benghazi killed four americans, including the ambassador to libya, not a single terrorist has been brought to justice. at the state department, an investigation by the accountability review board, arb, resulted in four employees being placed on administrative leave. now secretary of state john kerry ordered all four reassigned to different jobs. >> clearly things could have been done better. i think that's patently obvious to everybody that followed this almost a year now, but again, we have to let the facts lead where they may and these are people with real lives and real careers and we can't just take action that's not warranted against them to make us all feel better. >> reporter: eric boswell was the highest ranking, he resigned his post. another senior official testifi
for the obama administration to release intelligence backing its claims. we have fox team coverage tonight. fox news military analyst, jennifer griffin at the pentagon, what we know about possible tactics. we begin with chief white house correspondent ed henry on where things stand now. good evening, ed. >> reporter: good evening, bret. at this hour, the president is huddled in meetings whether to inch closer to military action, amid questions whether he will do something he railed against in 2008, acting unilaterally. as syrian officials -- biden joined the officials saying action is imminent. >> national security is strengthened. we will hold accountable those who violate international norms. >> reporter: two years ago this month president obama called for syrian president bashar al-assad to go. today, white house officials declared the objective of any possible military action would not be to drive the dictator from power. >> the options are not about regime change, they're about responding to a clear violation of an international standard that prohibits the use of chemical weapons. >> repor
. president obama says he hasn't made a decision yet, but that he is considering limited, narrow action in response to the chemical weapons attack. ed henry is at the white house monitoring the situation. ed joins us now. ed? >> reporter: andrea, good to see you. after days of laying low on syria, the president let his secretary of state, john kerry, take the lead on this issue twice this week. he came out a short time ago and spoke out, went after president assad in syria by basically saying this is a challenge to the world right now to step up and lead in the wake of this gas attack that killed, according to the administration, over 1400 people, mostly women and children inside syria. but the president now finds himself in a very difficult position. this is a nobel peace prize winner, someone that ran for president in 2008 saying you have to go to the u.n., you have to get congressional authorization before you act militarily. now standing alone on the world stage, pushing basically for unilateral u.s. military action, the president seeing his reset with russia, now in tatters at the
. >> leland vittert, thank you. >>> despite his digs on martha's vineyard, president obama was never far from the egypt crisis. ed henry on a returning president who's had to hit the ground running. >> reporter: just back from vacation, president obama is immediately facing pressure to deal with the spiraling situation in egypt, with defense secretary chuck hagel declaring the violence must end, though he quickly added the administration believes it has little leverage. >> our ability to influence the outcome in egypt is limited. it's up to the egyptian people and they're a large, great, sovereign nation, and it will be their responsibility to sort this out. >> reporter: some key republicans disagree and hit the sunday talk shows to declare it is time for the president to play an important card, cutting off the $1.3 billion in military aid the u.s. provides egypt each year. >> we have no credibility. we do have influence, but when you don't use that influence, then you do not have that influence. >> reporter: we are not winning the hearts and minds of those in egypt. >> we're going to have a
't think the rest of the world is enamored with obama. i love radio. radio is the single greatest opportunity i have to be who i am. >> rush limbaugh on the record. and you hear rush say things you never heard him say before. but first, in our one-on-one interview, rush limbaugh tells us what he thinks of president obama's phony scandal campaign. >> let me ask you, talking about the scandals, president obama says the scandals are phony. why do you think he says they're phony? because he believes it or is there a strategy? >> there's a strategy. i've been troubled by something with the obama i playfully call it the regime as i know it irritates him. it is much like a regime. i've been troubled, i've been amazed. here is a man whose policies have done great damage to this country. policies have done great damage to the economy. have done great damage to the american culture, to the american psyche. i mean, there is a malaise, there's a sense of hopelessness and depression out there. and it's his policies that have done this. what has always amazed me is that he's not attached to any
baier is on deck, "special report." >>> as al qaeda attempts to come back, president obama attempts another reset. this is "special report." good evening, i'm bret baier. so al qaeda isn't on its last legs after all. president obama is tweaking his message after being forced to shut down almost two dozen diplomatic outposts because of new terror threats. jennifer griffin is at the pentagon with the surprising story of what led to the bulking up of al qaeda in yemen. we begin with ed henry and the president's al qaeda makeover. good evening, ed. >> reporter: good evening, bret. the president used to say al qaeda was on the run, now he's just saying they're on their heels. addressing troops at camp pendleton, he said something he normally shies away from. >> we have been at war with al qaeda. >> reporter: on a late night comedy show, the president stressed to the troops he's all over it. >> even as we designate the al qaeda leadership that attacked us on 9/11, al qaeda affiliates and like minded extremists still threaten our home land. >> reporter: earlier, the president used the soft
president obama, had been right the first time. the threat is alive and well, which sensible people knew all along. the scary parts aren't really the threats, but that officials say our response to the threat is a lesson learned from benghazi. the lesson is close up shop because we can't protect you. that's no lesson. either you bolster security or get the hell out of the hell holes, but you don't close up shop because sooner or later the sign in the door will go from closed to open and evil will return and it won't be there asking for directions. so kimberly, feeling delightful in green, they're closed until next saturday. at some point they have to reopen. then what do you do? >> people feel insecure about the ability of the united states to protect them, as you say, close up shop, close for business until we can figure something out or the chatter stops. that's when you're at the most vulnerable, as soon as you open back up again, that's when you're going to get hit. there's been a little activity in terms of predator strikes but no major casualties from that of any of the known leaders.
. >> is it fair to say then that you don't think that what president obama announced last week in the press conference about a new board to oversee this is going to be good enough for you? >> well, he's had a board that had 14 members and now it's down to 4. no, i'm not interested. we have one. it's called congress. >> right. >> called the leg lative branch. if you want an advisory board, we have one. so you will have to just stop letting a few people know what's going on with the intelligence programs but let everyone know and if you don't, then you're going to find some of these tools are not available anymore. >> sounds reasonable to me. thank you so much. >>> it's becoming a habit. president obama trying to make an end run around congress. yet again. in june, president obama vowed to make climate change a priority of his second term and this week epa chief mccarthy saying that the president plans to bypass congress to get that done. >> they do think that this climate change issue and its impacts are fundamentally an economic challenge. they are fundamentally an economic challenge and i
over bam. yep, matt damon, if that's his real name, says he feels like president obama has dumped him. here's the former fan discussing the president with bet. >> he broke up with me. there are a lot of things i really question, you know, the legality of the drone strikes and the nsa revelations are -- you know, it's like -- you know, jimmy carter came out and said we don't live in a democracy. and that's a little -- that's a little intense when an ex-president says that. so, you know, he's got some explaining to do. particularly for a constitutional law professor. >> must have. blue shirt day on bet. anyway, on friday, obama called a press conference to address his relationship with damon directly. >> we have conversations. they're candid, they're blunt. often times they're constructive. i know the press likes to focus on body language, and he's got that kind of slouch, looking like the bored kid in the back of the classroom, but the truth is that when we're in conversations together, often times it's very productive. >> that's exactly what you say when you dump somebody. oh, you kno
president obama said we're going to show you how many jobs we saved, you can't actually show jobs saved. you can't show the number of crimes deterred. there are three important words out of the debate yesterday. integral, behavior, deterrent. integral, part of policing. behavior, meaning it is not racial profiling, it is behavior, and then the third thing, deterrents. i have to say, i lived in washington, d.c. compared to new york city, bob, i would much rather be in new york city, much safer place than d.c. >> what is integral. >> are you kidding me? integral. you have to have it. >> i didn't know. >> remind us not to partner with you in scrabble. >> i don't even play scrabble. >> i played this weekend. >> did you? >> i did. >> first off, the reason why new york works and the other cities don't is because new york is better at it, they're not profiling nationality and color of skin, doing behavior. what they're doing is when you stop 5 million people, only have 10% result in arrest, good job. because what you're saying is you are deterring people from walking out with a piece because they c
-american president standing on those same steps he did in 1963. here is president obama commemorating dr. king's dream and his lasting legacy this afternoon. >> on a hot summer day they assembled here in our nation's capital under the shadow of the great emancipator. everyone that realizes what those glorious patriots knew on that day that change does not come from washington but to washington. that change has always been built on our willingness, we, the people, to take on the mantle of citizenship, you are marching. that's the lesson of our past. that's the promise of tomorrow. >> okay, bob, you were particularly moved by this speech as you were by dr. king's speech so many years, 50 years ago. >> yeah. i think if dr. king had been alive today, listened to these tributes, i think he would have been -- first of all, he would have been amazed there was a black president, but i think obama did exactly the right thing. i think he talked about change coming from the grass roots into washington, not the other way around. i know there's been a lot of controversy about washington dictating from here
up next. he will get on that breaking news out of the house of commons. >>> the obama administration lays out its case for taking the country to another middle east conflict. this is "special report." good evening. i'm chris wallace. top administration officials are briefing congressional leaders this evening on their case for launching an attack against syria. secretary of state kerry, defense secretary hagel, national security adviser susan rice and james clapper are all laying out evidence the assad regime was responsible for the chemical attack last week that killed hundreds of civilians. we have fox team coverage. james rosen of the state department reports on a surprise defeat in britain. we begin with what the administration is doing right now. >> reporter: we finally reached the pivotal moment where the obama administration is revealing its intelligence. to prove the syrian government is behind the attack. they are doing that as they make their case to congress even though they are not promising votes in congress. syrian president bashar al assad remained defiant denying his
into another wave of chaos. more than 600 egyptians have been killed within the last 24 hours. president obama made a statement on the deteriorating situation from martha's vineyard earlier today. >> the united states strongly condemns the steps that have been taken by egypt's interim government and security forces. our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back. as a result, this morning, we notified the egyptian government that we are canceling our biannual joint military exercise which was scheduled for next month. i want to be clear that america wants to be a partner in the egyptian people's pursuit of a better future, but our partnership must also advance the principles that we believe in. >> bob, that was president obama earlier today. you worked at the state department. dealt with a lot of different crises over your time there and have watched many. is the president just caught between a rock and a hard place here and did he put himself in this position? >> i don't think he put himself in a position. i
. the department of justice when president obama came in, had a respected career u.s. attorney who was put in charge of investigating this, we're here nearly five years later, and the justice department refuses to release that report because it exonerates attorney general gonzalez and the bush white house of any attempt to bring politics to bear on the removal of nine u.s. attorneys for what were good and justifiable reasons. >> if they won't do that when it's an issue involving the previous administration, because they don't want to remove the cloud over attorney general gonzalez over those of us who were accused of being involved in a political effort to remove u.s. attorneys, do you have any confidence at all the attorney general would appoint a special prosecutor that would get to the bottom of this? no, i don't. >> the wrongfulness of failure to release that can't drive us completely. and the problem is, there's so many allegations of political political overtones in this. congressman levin submitted in washington post. but there's so many allegations they claim, that there's the targ
at any moment. assad crosses the red line, so will president obama give the green light and when? >> nobody knows what the red line means, nobody knows what crossing it means. >> they're under great pressure for the president to act because he drew that red line a year ago this month. >> there would be enormous consequences if we start saying moving chemical weapons -- that's a red line for us. >> chemical weapons have been used. what we saw in syria last week should shock the conscience of the world. >> a red line that has been crossed. >> barber al assad had to -- felt he had to use these chemical weapons. the president said it was a red line, and he interpreted it as a green light. >> there's no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. >> the indiscriminate slaughter of is a yilians, by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. >> if you listen to john kerry, is it true? we're going to war over the claim that there are weapons of mass destruction in syria? that's what chemical weapons are. haven't we already seen this movie? h
deal. what about the obama administration's big push to paint real problems as phony scandals? >> this administration is the least transparent in history. they're making it very clear that what they said they don't do. they deny, they deceive, they delay. >> whether it's about the attacks in benghazi and the talking points or revelations about conduct at the irs. the attempts to turn this into a scandal have failed. >> this has to stop. this is not a scandal. this is a national security failure where four brave americans died and we're doing nothing to bring the people to justice to understand how it failed. >> all of these scandals, he calls them they're not distraction, they're real. they detract from the reality of what happened to the country on the policies. >> fireworks over obama care because the price tag is going higher. some leading republicans pushing a new effort to fund the law entirely as we get more bad news on how much it will cost. it's hurting the people, the jobs, the 40-hour workweek. there is bipartisan agreement that this isn't working. if we can't fight
agree on except this. washington stinks. president obama's approval rating plum sed. 82% think the lawmakers deser s deserve to take off the month of august. congress is never popular. washington doesn't rate well on the popularity scale. people tend to personally like their own congressman. the reports we are getting back is that this time it could be different. i wanted to ask you, do you think some of the incumbent are in trouble? >> i talked to democratic campaign committee who handles the house. the average rating of approval for members of the house is about 88% or 89%. 70% now. i think the idea of a safe incumbent -- when i was in the business if you had an incumbent very rare they lose. if a wave if a big issue comes along a lot of people who think they are safe will be in trouble. >> anything we are learning in august 2013 tell us something about what will happen in mid term of november 2014. because president obama's numbers are not good now it's hard to get those back up. and then if you take the fact that most incumbents lose seats from their party in congress at t
for being with us. >>> this is a fox news alert. the brits are snubbing president obama. so he go it alone in syria. >> aye. >> country, no. >> the noes have it. >> if the united states decides to lead military action in reprisal or to punish the use of chemical weapons last week, britain will not be part of that. >> i strongly believe in the need nor a tough response to the use of chemical weapons. this is clear to me that the british parliament reflecting the views of the british people does not want to see british military action. i get that and the government will act accordingly. >> we've been here in 2003. basically misled. we told there were weapons of mass destruction in iraq and there weren't. it is a complete humiliation for the obama administration. here's obama trying to gather an ally or two for a pinprick and gets nothing. >> the president laid down america's credibility by issuing a red line. >> the president of the united states said for a year that bashar assad thoos go. now we're in a position to go, now they have no strategy, no idea what they're doing. >> former secreta

head-to-head over an obama care poll that will leave you absolutely stunned. wait until you hear what 92% of federal government employees had to say about the president's health care overhaul. by the way, they don't want it. >>> and later, it's come to this. the naacp is actually calling for the secret service and the obama justice department to investigate this rodeo clown. is that how you want your tax dollars spent? we have a heated "hannity" debate. it's still ahead. you get to select today's video of the day. option number one is the second and third installments of the rnc's viral video assault on hillary clinton. >> the investment firm seeking those investor visas is run by mrs. clinton's brother anthony rodham. >> you right now, 7 years of music is being streamed. a quarter million tweeters are tweeting. and 900 million dollars are changing hands online. that's why hp built a new kind of server. one that's 80% smaller. uses 89% less energy. and costs 77% less. it's called hp moonshot. and it's giving the internet the room it needs to grow. this&is gonna be big. hp moonshot. it
this one, this one is stupidity on steroids, obama administration. >> you know, i don't even get how this one can happen. it's like we give the government hell for a lot of things and you might disagree with things politically, from time to time with administrations, but the whole idea that this guy is, they know about him, they know about this guy and his job, while he is promoting some sort of race war and making gay slurs. we'll find out more as to whether he received a approval for this or not because evidently, thus far it looks like he did receive approval to have this side job of running the website, but it's pretty ironic there that we hear that other officials are saying, oh, appropriate action will be taken if we form a committee and decide whether this guy has violated any kind of hr rule ors not. well, it seems to be appropriate disciplinary action with these very gnarly hr issues we're seeing by some in the obama administration, by -- what, sharing tea and crumpets by the offending official. look at the scandals in the irs, and the doj, now dhs and the nsa. these are hr

and estimates put it at more than 100,000. a yearing on president obama said chemical weapon used in syria would be crossing a red line. >> president conferred with another world leader on syria. >> he spoke with british prime minister david cameron about the possible chemical weapons attack. they expressed grave concern and agreed to work together and with the international community to figure out how to respond. president obama is getting reports from the u.s. enteleigence community which according to the white white trying to ascertain what happened in syria and waiting to hear from a united nation's team in syria before the president makes a decision on how the u.s. will respond. in the moan time defense secretary chuck hagel told reporters that the defense department has a responsibility to provide the president with options for all contingency and that requires positioning our forces and assets to be able for the president to choose. and harris, the u.s. has four war ships in the region, harris. >> it is awfully difficult when we are not begin information or notes to know whether and this

president obama has repeatedly denounced leaks, there was an extraordinary breach leaked today, putting the administration in a flattering light. u.s. officials told "the new york times" the white house decided to close the embassies after intercepting electronic communications between top al qaeda leaders. one u.s. official boasting this was significant, it was the big guys talking and talking about very specific timing for an attack or attacks. the leak about intercepting electronic communications is a bit of unfortunate timing for the administration, just as it has been taking heat over whether the nsa surveillance programs go too far, although the new information showing such close coordination between al qaeda's core leadership in pakistan and top affiliate in the arabian peninsula raises new questions about whether the terror group is really on the run. >> we have brought continually pressure to bear on both al qaeda core and al qaeda's affiliates, and we have for a number of years made clear our intention in terms of the threat presented by al qaeda has shifted in focus to some o
july, 2008. some communication that the irs and fec are having. this predates president obama's november 2008 election. does that signal to you that at least it doesn't go as high as the white house? he wasn't even president then. >> it may. what we do know is there is communication going on that's not appropriate. it's about a question that should be totally dealt with in the internal re new service. that's what most concerns us. if it is referencing something before then, lois lerner worked at the federal elections commission before the irs. maybe she goes -- she's concerned about this. but the point is there is coordination. at least what appears to be coordination between two federal agencies. >> in terms of the response you want, you want the response back by august 21? >> last week, i had a chance in committee to question acting commissioner dan warfall and i said why don't we have all of learn er's e-mails today? it seems the first thing you would have done as commissioner is send us all her e-mails. who's she been talking to? she took the 5th. if you want to, as the pr
delay for the president's healthcare law forces the obama administration to play defense. >> this is no longer a political debate. this is what we call the law. >> the president claims that this law is working the way it's supposed to. but, clearly it's not. >> john: we'll ask our sunday panel about the political fallout. all right here on "fox news sunday." >> hello again from fox news in washington. more tough questions for the nsa after the "the washington post" reported this week that the agency violated privacy rules. thousands of times since 2008. an internal audit obtained from leaker edward snowden reveals that the nation's most secretive spy agency intercepted phone calls and emails of american citizens repeatedly during that time. and, in some cases did, not report the unauthorized surveillance. now some lawmakers are promising hearings. joining us with reaction is republican senator rand paul of kentucky, a member of the senate homeland security committee and author of government bullies, senator, welcome back to "fox news sunday." good to be with you this morn
, well, that's still out of control. oh, and on top of that obama care is weeks away, it is the perfect storm, but who is steering the ship? anyone? former congressman alan west joins us, good evening. >> how are you doing, greta? >> big overall question, do you think washington is listening to the american people? >> no, i don't think so. i think that washington, d.c. is very comfortable. somewhat insulated when you cross the potomac river you come into a different word. when you look at the fact there is no big problem with unemployment in washington, d.c. no big problem with the real estate market. there's no big problem with salaries in washington, d.c. business is good in washington, d.c. it's bad outside of the beltway. so you're right. here we are coming up on $17 trillion of debt and so we're going to hit the debt limit again. have to figure out how to fund the government. another short-term measurement because they didn't get the appropriations bill done and worry about the obama care exchanges kicking in the 1st of october. and it's -- the american people are starting to say w
and methods. >> he made plain that he and barack obama are certain, highly confident chemical weapons were used and used by the assad regime. the only question is can they persuade capitol hill and whether or not it is wise to do anything. >> will they wait for a chance to persuade capitol hill? capitol hill doesn't come back here until monday. >> indeed it doesn't. we know what the brits think, nato said no, the brits say no, the u.n. says they're going to wait, and secretary kerry said today that the u.n. -- they're determining whether there were chemical weapons used, not who used them, which is, of course, a significant issue. but anyway, james, thank you. >> thank you. >>> today, senator mike lee tweeting if the president cannot convince congress the syrian crisis threatens our national security, military intervention should be off the table. senator lee, nice to see you. >> thank you very much. >> what does the president have to do to convince you, sir, what's needed? >> well, he has to demonstrate to me and other members of congress that this is in the national security interest of
business owners say obama care makes it impossible for them to hire. >> more dollars you take out of the owner's pocket, less money to reinvest into the company. >>> want a solid, well paying career? dirty jobs host mike rowe says learn a blue collar trade. tonight on a special "huckabee," where's my job? ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you, thank you very much and welcome to a special edition of "huckabee," where's my job? from man's beginning as recorded in the book of genesis, we were hard wired for work. we were told by god that we would earn our bread by the sweat of our brow. it is natural to want to prove value by producing. from the time we are children, we imitate our parents in their work, whether it is the little boy who tries to take tools to fix something or the little girl who begs to help her mother in the kitchen. it is just part of our dna to want to be grown up, and one sure way to feel grown up is to work. that's why the loss of a job is far, far more than just an economic setback for a human being. it is dehumanizi
. >> but it is not just the gop that doesn't like obama care. >> i just see a huge train wreck coming down. >> i'm of the belief the aca is probably the most complex piece of legislation ever passed by the united states congress. >> democrats, the irs, and even unions have major issues with obama care. the president says no one has a better plan. >> what are the solutions to obama care. some say we don't have them. i say we do. >> tonight, the cost, the cure. a "huckabee" special. the governor solutions to obama care. ladies and gentlemen, mike huckabee. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you, thank you very much. we've got a great audience here. and let me say welcome to "huckabee" from the fox news studios in new york city. all right. train wreck, hopelessly complex, will destroy the 40 hour work week, devastate american working people. those are some comments about obama care. those were the ones made by people that supported it. president obama rejected republican input on the bill, then he's complained ever since that the republicans aren't in favor of it. i wonder if he looked around to see
to the american people. >> the white house says it's considering whether president obama should meet one on one with president putin at the g 20 summit in russia this year. lawmakers from both political parties want even tougher action than that, more on that part of the story coming up. first to the fox report correspondent jonathan hunt in the "america's newsroom." what is next for edward snowden. >> now is he literally free to move about the country of russia as a refugee as russia has now officially labeled him. is he entitled to government housing, he might also get a hotel room and rent an apartment according to his lawyer who said today, quote: he now is one of the most sought after men in the world. the issue of security is very important to him: snowden himself in a statement thanking the russian government and said over the past 8 weeks we have seen the obama administration show no respect for international or domestic law but in the end, the law is winning. so, for now, harris, edward snowden's home is somewhat ironically a country not exactly known as a paragon of individual libert
into the united states. putin looks into the eyes of barack obama. if there was a strong personality there, and someone who was willing to put out a strategy, he would react to that. i see the hand that he is playing. >> senator, isn't it em bar rasing to see him suck up to him the way that he has? >> i think so. >> i think it is. >> senator? >> once he started his administration on the apology tour. he is looking for the love of the world when we need respect. we need to show that we are the world's leader. then russia would start respecting us. we need to start encouraging nato expansion. we need to beef up our miss sill defense. that moving toward a posture of a hostile rival. that is the first thing that you have to do in developing a strategy. i'm afraid this administration is not recognizing that reality. professor cone said nobody is afraid of this guy. i would put it differently. i think the rest of the world sees him as a whimp. am i wrong? >> i wouldn't say you are wrong. i can't identify a foreign policy coming out of this president. they can't identify it either. we need to be
party groups were being bad. in 2010, at about the time the irs began this targeting, president obama on at least four occasions specifically suggested that these were front groups for foreign operations. david axlerod, his close consultant, made that allegation directly and so did numerous others. president obama called it a problem to democracy and then upped it to a threat to democracy. when you have your leaders putting that kind of thing out there, when you have senator baucus and senator schumer and senator merkley and senator shaheen and several other democratic senators writing to the irs saying, these groups are dangerous, you need to investigate them. what do you think the irs is going to do? they are people. they see this. they know these are powerful people saying these groups are a threat to democracy. you need to get them. that's the real scandal. not a smoking gun. >> then, you have to take it to the next chapter. now that they have gotten caught with their pants down, now that they have been caught targeting, now, what's the explanation for the leader? what's the cultu
on "fox news sunday" the senator blaming president obama's foreign policy. >> the only american policy that i can think of that president obama is practicing is that, one, he's not bush. second, that the united states is withdrawing. we are withdrawing. and when you do that and when you say that, then things get a lot worse than they are. >> live with the news tonight in washington, steve, the embassy in yemen remains closed. why is that significant? >> well, we don't know if there's an actual threat there or what kind of a threat. we do know yemen's a stronghold of the al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. president obama says that branch of al qaeda continues to pose a serious threat to americans. but the president's critics say he's been understating the overall terrorist threat. >> you can't say on the one hand you have destroyed, quote, core al qaeda. by the way, that is semantic gymnastics which is remarkable. you can't say that and at the same time have to close embassies and consulates all over the middle east. look, al qaeda's on the rise. they have been on the rise. they have co
? >> it could be also that president obama is going to be on jay leno tonight. who knows. the fact that this guy is in a halfway house while terrorists are free, it is like arresting the editors of runners world for the marathon bomber, letting him go free. i will say this about this filmmaker, no question he is a shady dude, he did break some laws, but he was also a decoy, a pawn in a government coverup. he is really not the story here. the story is how the white house found him and used him in order to win an election. wait a second. he was integral in getting obama elected because they used him to smooth over the idea there was terrorism. obama should pardon him for helping him with the election or introduce him to george clooney, have him make connections in hollywood. this guy got obama reelected. >> let's remember that he has now three fatwas against him, they want to put him in protective custody, somebody needs to. these guys are serious players when it comes to that stuff. one thing that bothers me about what he said, i can't find all of the moderate muslims he is talking about who are
